Omnitracs, a provider of fleet management solutions for transportation and logistics companies, is collaborating with Red Hat to accelerate the development and capabilities of its Omnitracs One platform.
The companies hope to use their respective expertises—Red Hat provides open-source, cloud-native solutions—to deliver a cloud-native solution designed to provide Omnitracs’ customers with the security capabilities, flexibility and scalability required to “reshape the way business is done today.”
“At Omnitracs, we’re committed to providing ground-breaking solutions to help our customers succeed and fulfill emerging demands,” said Kent Norton, chief technology officer at Omnitracs. “When we set out to enhance Omnitracs One, we knew we needed a development partner with the expertise and innovative capabilities to up the level of reliability, scalability, performance and security of the platform, while also helping minimize development time of new and customer-desired functionalities.
“From the beginning, Red Hat was a great fit, and we’re thrilled to continue working with the company to provide unprecedented capabilities for our customers.”
By using Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat Ansible Tower and expertise from Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, Omnitracs aims to expedite the development of new Omnitracs One features. The new cloud-native architecture is designed to better streamline and simplify processes and activities for increased productivity, and a user experience that can surpass current industry standards.
Together, Omnitracs and Red Hat says they are focused on accelerating capabilities for the commercial transportation industry, including an “open development ecosystem with unified management and reporting tools.”
Working side-by-side to enhance Omnitracs One and provide a more holistic, easier-to-use platform, Omnitracs and Red Hat aim to develop a solution that can enable Omnitracs’ customers to:
- Simplify: Create better engagement for both internal and external touchpoints through streamlined monitoring and management that maximizes every driver, customer and back-office touchpoint with access to valuable industry applications on a single, integrated platform
- Unify: A unified environment that provides simplicity to the user experience for the driver, and supports an enriched management experience and improved reporting insights
- Amplify: Quick access to a wider range of solutions than ever before to adapt faster, maximize returns and unlock new potential
“Embracing digital transformation, from cloud-native technologies to DevOps, is a vital step for organizations across industries, especially as market demands, competitive pressures and customer needs evolve in complexity and scale,” said John Allessio, vice president of global services and enablement at Red Hat. “Omnitracs is helping to address these challenges by converting from being a traditional software company to a digital platform provider, built upon innovation within the Omnitracs One platform.
“Red Hat is pleased to bring our cloud-native solutions and open source expertise to bear as they help to advance commercial logistics through emerging technologies.”
